About the event

Waterford Musical Society Presents

EVITA

 

The musical is based on the life of the Argentine First Lady, Eva Perón (1919 – 1952), affectionately known as “Evita” to the people of Argentina. Set in Buenos Aires, the musical follows Eva on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress, to the most powerful woman in Latin America—and, eventually, to a saint-like figure after her death at age 33.

 

Eva rises from poverty to become the wife of powerful President, Juan Peron. Through a series of flashbacks, Eva “works” her way up from a poor teenager into a woman of influence and power. After the death of her father, Eva travels to Buenos Aires and begins a string of relationships with powerful men before meeting Juan. Eva’s ultimate power and influence earn her both admiration and hatred.

 

This musical is slick, polished, full of drama and passion. Evita has never been performed by any Waterford theatre group, WMS will yet again set the stage alight with an emotionally charged powerful musical with songs such as Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, Oh What a Circus, Another Suitcase Another Hall.

 

Evita gives a fascinating glimpse into the personal life of Argentina’s most influential woman.

 

Not to be missed in Spring 2024!
